"It's easy to feel loved when you're riding high, performing well, on top of your game. It's more difficult to access those feelings of worthiness and unconditional acceptance when things gone awry and your humanity is poking out of every seam."- Leeana Tankersley Brazen
Last year was the year. I was on top of the world. Top of my running game. I felt like I was moving forward in my career. Financially we had been making huge strides, and yet, emotionally I was dead on the inside. The outside looked beautiful. I felt completely on top because I was. Achieving was easy on the outside but dead on the inside. My how the table has turned and grass isn't greener on the other side or maybe it is?
I broke up with my career, shifted gears and could not feel my humanity more than ever. When you go from being on the top to being on the bottom, the world changes. Financially everything has changed, emotionally am more alive, but I can't access those feelings of worthiness. Why do we equate success to money? Why is failure associated with high careers, money, and value? It's completely messed up!
Brazen is teaching me to find the courage within who I am, the things I love and that I am ENOUGH. I wish this book would have come out sooner in life, but alas, it came right when I needed it.
